There's going to be another standalone Wolverine movie, but Hugh Jackman will be taking his time...

It's been a week or so now since it was first revealed that 20th Century Fox was interested in pushing ahead with a follow-up to its summer hit, The Wolverine. As such, both director James Mangold and Hugh Jackman have been approached again over the film.

Chatting to EW, Jackman has confirmed this is the case, but also said that "I don't want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one". Describing Wolverine as "kind of like a best friend to me", Jackman said that he didn't want to take him of the fans for granted.

"I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward ... There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even formed yet".

There's been no timescale mentioned on the film so far, but as we hear more, we will of course let you know.
